CAB biography
In 2000, a jazz-rock ubergroup quietly formed consisting of long-time session man Bunny BRUNEL, guitarist extraordinaire Tony MacALPINE and master drummer Dennis CHAMBERS. Veteran organist Brian AUGER would soon join, and keyboard innovator Patrice RUSHEN has since recorded with them as well. The band provided a shot in the arm to the Fusion scene and recorded some of the better, more schooled jazz-rock at the time, taking influence from classic artists such as TONY WILLIAMS, WEATHER REPORT and RETURN TO FOREVER but bringing a contemporary polish to the music and a bright, rich studio sound.

'CAB' was a good debut but 'CAB 2' stole the show with its high-quality performances and was nominated for a Grammy. Patrice RUSHEN was added in 2003 for 'CAB 4' (no 'CAB 3' exists), and 'CAB Live' was released in 2005.

Easily one of the classiest bands to emerge post-2000, CAB is recommended to just about anyone with a taste for jazz and rock brewed together by seasoned artists. "CAB is, in fact" states their bio, "something like what jazz might have become had the torch not been dropped so soon after the fusion race had begun".

Review by Lear'sFool

4 stars CAB is a fusion supergroup featuring Bunny Brunel on bass, Dennis Chambers on drums, Brian Auger on keys, and Tony MacAlpine on guitar, and their first outing feels like a nostalgia trip. Their music here mainly sounds like it's from the early seventies, coming out alongside the albums of Mahavishnu, Mwandishi, and Nucleus, and otherwise sounds like a killer take on muzak. Brunel's bass is probably the best part; it certainly is the glue that holds the group together, and has many great solos. The rest of the band does very well themselves, with MacAlpine's guitar solos driving the band much like those of McLaughlin in his Orchestra. The whole record is really wonderful solos by a band who simultaneously vies to be top dog, and yet knows to give everyone a chance to shine, and to support their friends when they go off the handle. A smooth, solo driven piece of throwback fusion, it is an enjoyable listen.

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars This album is a tour de force from some of the most talented and heavenly gifted musicians in today's world of fusion and not only!Fans of the genre know very well that this album is the 4-th studio album of the super group,because...in a bizarre way,they did alreay a CAB 4 cd...without the 3 one...that's trully weird!This new one is putting the standards even higher with the inclusion of the atomic drummer VIRGIL DONATI!Brian Auger is still in the gang,and other great artists like PATRICE RUSHEN,MICHEL POLNAREFF and especially the maestro CHICK COREA are giving a strong touch to a stellar album aready!The core of the band is composed of BUNNY BRUNEL-the instigator of the project and TONY MACALPINE,this time credited as co-producer too!What can or could be sayed about an album that is destined to become a classic in fusion music?It's simply breathtaking in terms of virtuosity and musicianship!Strong compositions,elaborated and catchy,fluid solos and amazing musical alchemy!Sometimes it's really breathtaking and our respect for this kind of musicians which are continuing to enchant and delight us with albums like this one...our respect is endless!Pure demonstrations of virtuosity...great solo interventions in the middle of the compositions,a fantastic clear and crystal sound,a fabulous production-more than a hour of pure fusion extravaganza!Highlights of the album-AL TRACKS!Yes,because all are having their own personality and each song is EXCELLENT!Tony Macalpine seems to be more and more ok in the fusion direction-here he is absolutelly on top of his tremendeous talent-a true guitar chameleon.Bunny Brunel is a bass monster-a true virtuoso both spectacular and efficient-VIRGIN DONATI is unleashed,as usual with a ferocious and powerful playing on each song!He made forgeot DENNIS CHAMBERS with brio,another monster drumer. and present on the first 3 CAB releases!.Donati is here really sensational and very,very inspired!The keys parts are excellent and all the album is very enjoyable from the first to the last minute!4,5 STARS for something almost perfect!

Review by Atavachron
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars This is Chambers, Auger, Brunel and MacAlpine's second album in the CAB series and was a big step-up from their first. It is a firm but elegant session that reintroduced contemporary jazz-rock to a comatose Fusion scene and surprised everyone with a compositionally strong, tightly-executed and cleanly recorded follow-up. In fact, of the three studio and one live recordings, 'CAB 2' is superior and really should be a part of any modern fusionhead's library. If you stop to think about it - the legendary Brian Auger, indisputably God-like shredder Tony MacAlpine, always ready session man and RTF alum Bunny Brunel, and Dennis Chambers, probably the best drummer in the universe - the results are not surprising. And no skimp here, more than half of the ten cuts are over seven minutes.

'Decisions' is fine-- melodic and smooth with a blistered solo from Tony. But 'Madeline' gets things going, opening with soft, cool chords from Auger that mimic a child's taunt, a lithe guitar-key phrase complimented by Brunel's counter riff, deft thunder rolls from Chambers and resolves into a pretty passage sprinkled with MacAlpine's chops. 'Dennis' is strong and full of tremendous playing by namesake Chambers. He makes it sound easy, like a separate species, a one-in-a-million breed of player and his performance on this record demands the attention of all drummers, and 'For Joe' is just as good, showing traditional fusion influences like Tony Williams and RTF. Some of the material is in the same neighborhood as the watered down pap jazz-rock had become as in 'South Side' and the tinny samba beats of 'Songs for My Friend', but most of it is downright classy. 9-minute 'Temperamental' is quietly fierce and easy going 'Sunday' to finish. Grammy nominated, and recommended.
